SAN ANTONIO – A pawn shop on the South Side was destroyed on Friday morning following a fire.
The fire started at around 2:15 a.m. at the EZ Pawn in the 3000 block of Goliad Road, near Southeast Military Drive.
Firefighters arrived to find billows of smoke coming from the store. They had difficulty extinguishing flames due to entry problems and windy conditions, according to SAFD.
The fire has since been extinguished and the building was demolished.
Debris from the fire and demolition was seen in the roadway around Goliad Road and Military Drive, causing some lane closures.
Drivers should expect to see delays in the area.
SAFD believes the fire started outside the building, but the cause is unknown at this time.
Fire investigators are at the scene.
KSAT has a crew at the scene. This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
